About our Board of Trustees
The Board of Trustees is the governing group of the school. It is made up of elected parents, staff representative, the Principal, and any members co-opted by the Board.
The Board’s job is to:
Formulate and monitor the policies that the school will operate under.
Oversee the maintenance of the school’s buildings and grounds.
Oversee and approve expenditure.
Approve staff appointments and act on personnel issues within legal requirements.
Monitor the effectiveness of the school’s service.
The Board of Trustees is elected every three years. The new Board was elected took office on 13th September 2022. The Board welcomes feedback from other parents, and welcomes people to attend its monthly meetings, which are on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 5:30 p.m.
Spotlight on the Board of Trustees
Each month following our Board of Trustees meeting we will be including some information in the newsletter to inform you about what is happening at the meetings.
We have recently had some training and the points covered were related to the Board of Trustees roles.
Some key messages:
The Board has a responsibility to govern the school effectively.
The Principal is a member of the Board of Trustees and there is also a staff representative. This is important as we all work in partnership. The primary concern of the Board is student learning and they ensure that all Board policies, practices and plans are focused on high levels of student achievement.
The Board meets once a month for a full Board of Trustees meeting. This is a public meeting and anyone from our community can attend. During each month there are also sub-committee meetings for property, community planning, finance and policies.
Our Board is committed to representing the parents’ and community voice.
